The day was cool and showers persisted on and off
until we reached north of mile marker 153 on the GSP. Actually,
it was perfect riding weather! Age’d led the ride after
meeting up with Stephanie, Michele M. and Susan M., while I rode
sweep and Arden drove chase.
I was happy to ride after looking forward to the trip for some time! Making
only necessary stops for gas and lunch, we reached Lake George in
time for sign in and to meet up with Barbara. and Mickey for
dinner at a wonderful Italian Restaurant. It was fun to join
the gals to talk about the happenings at the different events.
Mickey. had purchased a brand new set of neon’s and that’s
when I noticed I had lost the amber cover on my front fender decorative
light. After dinner we drove to our motel at Lake Luzerne. At
least 12 miles from the village of Lake George, our motel offered
a peaceful place to recharge, and was located only a short distance
from a very good ice cream shop!
We passed the days shopping at the indoor and outdoor expositions,
a boat ride around the Lake, a ride to Prospect Mountain, missed
the fireworks because my feet couldn’t take another step, and
test rode the three-wheeled Spyder! That was a trip! One
day while shopping, I found a replacement cover for the front light
and had new foot-pegs installed.
The events at Americade were very well planned and locations easy
to find with detailed maps. There were many vendors and activities
to do. The Planners mentioned that while other rallies were
down by 30%, Americade was down only by 1%. Not bad considering
the cost of gas!
Returning home on Sunday, the day Americade ended, I took the lead
and everyone arrived home safely, with only one missed turn onto
a ramp! No problem, we just backed down and we were off once
Thank you ladies for a great trip!
Ride Safe, Have fun!
